Every day, St. Francis Memorial Hospital pulls one or several large trucks up to its "loading dock" on Pine St. I put loading dock in quotes because it's actually just a curb cut with a garage door cut into the side if the building. The sidewalk here is all of ten feet wide.
So when a truck longer that ten feet pulls up, the sidewalk disappears. And, as I said, that happens every day.
For the sake of completeness, I should point out that Pine Street is no lazy cul de sac. It's been a traffic sewer since the '50s when it was made one-way and widened to four lanes. But Pine is still a residential street.
A hospital like St. Francis provides an invaluable service to the city, but it should not get a free pass to put its neighbors in danger.
